5.1 We need to collect your PII so that we can respond to your requests for information and demonstrations or to be added to our emailing lists, and to process your requests for access to our Site. We also collect aggregate information to help us better design the Site and Site. We collect log information for monitoring purposes to help us to diagnose problems with our servers, administer the Site and Site, calculate usage levels, and otherwise provide services to you.
5.2 Background Check. A background check is required by our corporate customers, that you would like to work for, or provide services to as an independent contractor. Without going submitting this information to the Background Checker, we cannot submit your application for the position that you are seeking.
5.3 Financial Information. If you are hired for a temporary or contractor role for which you applied on the Service, you will be hired by Curate, not our corporate customer, for such position and we will pay you for the work that you do on behalf of our corporate customer.
6.1 We use the PII you provide for the purposes for which you have submitted it including:
• Internal Uses. We may use your PII to respond to your inquiries, to fulfill your requests for information, develop and improve the Service, and perform research and analytics.
• Onboarding You. In the event that you are applying to a temporary or contractor position, Curate will be the entity that hires you so that you may provide services to our corporate customers. To do so, we will need to process some of your personal information.
• Financial Information. We use this information to pay you if you are hired as a temporary worker or a contractor.
• Background Checks and Credit Reports. Your social security number, driver’s license number, and other PII, will be collected, and used, by a third party provider to conduct background checks so that we know it is safe for you to work for, or provide services to, our corporate customers, and receive access to their confidential information and proprietary systems. The Background Checker may also obtain a copy of your credit report with this information.
6.2 We may use anonymous information that we collect to improve the design and content of our Service, and to enable us to personalize your Site experience. We also may use this information in the aggregate to analyze how the Service is used, analyze industry trends, as well as to offer you programs or services.
In general, we will not share your PII except: (a) for the purposes for which you provided it; (b) with your consent, or as you direct; (c) as may be required by law or as we think necessary to protect our organization or others from injury (e.g., in response to a court order or subpoena, in response to a law enforcement agency request, or when we believe that someone is causing, or is about to cause, injury to or interference with the rights or property of another); or (d) on a confidential basis with persons or organizations with whom we contract to carry out internal operations, which may include for example, analytical services, our ATS (as defined below), or as necessary to render the Service. With your knowledge and consent, we may share your PII with our business partners, such as our marketing partners and event co-hosts.
We may also share aggregate information with others, including affiliated and non-affiliated organizations.
Finally, we may transfer your PII to a third party, or our successor-in-interest, in relation to, or in the event of, a merger, acquisition, sale of all or substantially all of our assets, reorganization, bankruptcy, or other change of control. After such disclosure or transfer, the third party or successor in interest may use the information in accordance with applicable law.
You can revise your PII from within the Service. We may provide you with additional options to access and control your information in the future. If applicable, we will provide instructions on these options on the Service. If such options are provided, we will take reasonable steps to help verify your identity before granting access, making corrections or removing your information in order to protect your privacy and security.
9.1 After receiving your PII, we will store it on our Service for future use. Your employment information will be stored in our applicant tracking system, Microsoft Dynamics, (“ATS”) provided by the Microsoft Corporation, One Microsoft Way, Redmond, Washington 98052-8300 (“Microsoft”), in order to provide the Service to you. We, and Microsoft, have physical, electronic, and managerial procedures in place to safeguard and help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data security, and correctly use the information we collect. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the internet or data storage solution can ever be completely secure. As a result, although we take industry-standard steps to protect your information (e.g., strong encryption), we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to or receive from us or that we store on our or our service providers’ systems.
9.2 If you are accessing the Service from outside of the USA, you understand that your connection will be through and to servers located in the USA, and the information you provide will be securely stored in our web servers and internal systems located within the USA.
9.3 We store your PII until we are required to remove it. We store our logs and other technical records in accordance with internal practices and policies, and potentially indefinitely.
10.1 To enhance your online experience with us, our web pages may presently or in the future use “cookies.” Cookies are text files that our web server may place on your hard disk to store your preferences. We may use session, persistent, first-party and third-party cookies. Cookies, by themselves, do not tell us your email address or other PII unless you choose to provide this information to us. Once you choose to provide PII, however, this information may be linked to the data stored in the cookie. Certain features of our Service may not function properly without the aid of cookies. Curate uses session cookies, which are necessary to allow you to seamlessly navigate from one page or area of the Site to another during your visit, and these are normally deleted when you close your web browser. We also use persistent cookies for your convenience so that you can log in faster, your preferences are remembered from visit to visit, and that you have an overall more convenient experience while visiting our Site.
10.3 We or our service providers may also use “pixel tags,” “web beacons,” “clear GIFs” embedded links, and other commonly used information-gathering tools in connection with some Site pages and HTML-formatted email messages for such purposes as compiling aggregate statistics about Site usage and response rates. A pixel tag is an electronic image (often a single pixel), that is ordinarily not visible to website visitors, and may be associated with cookies on visitors’ hard drives. Pixel tags allow us and our service providers to count users who have visited certain pages of the Site, to deliver customized services, and to help determine the effectiveness of our promotional and advertising campaigns, Site, and Service. When used in HTML-formatted email messages, pixel tags can inform the sender of the email whether and when the email has been opened.
10.4 As you use the Internet, you leave a trail of electronic information at each website you visit. This information, which is sometimes referred to as “clickstream data”, can be collected and stored by a website’s server. Clickstream data can reveal the type of computer and browsing software you use and the address of the website from which you linked to the Site. We may use clickstream data as a form of non-personally identifiable information to determine how much time visitors spend on each page of our Site, how visitors navigate through the Site, and how we may tailor our web pages to better meet the needs of visitors. We will only use this information to improve our Site and Service.
10.5 Do Not Track. At present, the Service does not specifically respond to browser do-not-track signals.
If FCRA applies to your information, you have the right to request that information from us and the Background Checker; to correct or delete inaccurate information; and to know which credit reporting agency provided your information.
We do not knowingly collect any information from any minors, and we comply with all applicable privacy laws including the CCPA, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”), and associated Federal Trade Commission (“FTC”) rules for collecting personal information from minors.

If you have concerns about this Site, wish to find out if your child has accessed our services, or wish to remove your child’s personal information from our servers, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

In the event that we discover that a child under the age of 13 has provided PII to us, we will make efforts to delete the child’s information in accordance with the COPPA.
